By Roger Mortimer.
This comedy is based on the Sunday Times Humour Book of the Year 2013, Letters to a Wayward Son. Roger Mortimer, BBC2 racing reporter and Sunday Times racing correspondent, started writing to his son Charlie, who at 15 was on the verge of being kicked out of Eton. Over the next 25 years the letters reveal a father’s unconditional love for his son, despite Charlie’s spiral into drink, illicit sex and drugs, “I am very fond of you but you drive me round the bend.” It has it all: nostalgia, wit, pathos and genuine laugh out loud moments.
Contains the occasional use of strong language.
